The Phonebox at the Edge of the World Laura Imai Messina

Hugest thank you to Ellen for my review copy of this one.

We all have something to tell those we have lost . . .

When Yui loses her mother and daughter in the tsunami, she wonders how she will ever carry on. Yet, in the face of this unthinkable loss, life must somehow continue.

Then one day she hears about a man who has an old disused telephone box in his garden. There, those who have lost loved ones find the strength to speak to them and begin to come to terms with their grief. As news of the phone box spreads, people travel to it from miles around.

Soon Yui makes her own pilgrimage to the phone box, too. But once there she cannot bring herself to speak into the receiver. Then she finds Takeshi, a bereaved husband whose own daughter has stopped talking in the wake of their loss.

What happens next will warm your heart, even when it feels as though it is breaking.

When you’ve lost everything, what can you find . . ?

Wow oh wow!! How can I possibly write a review that will do this gorgeous book justice?

This is an absolutely beautiful and touching read that I haven’t wanted to put down. I have been so touched by this book, it is so beautifully written you become completely engaged and sucked in.

This is impossible to put down when you start it. This is a beautiful story of developing new relationships after grief. I have loved the characters.

This book is definitely five stars, I wish I could give it so many more because this is a wonderful book and one everyone should read.
